In classical physics, the energy of a system in which matter changes from one state to another seems to plateau as we approach the critical temperature. Taking simple observations from Physics, the piece examines how structural change and associated intermediary states can be applied to sociological readings. Examining societies in times of crisis, and looking at the operation of flash-points as catalysts of accelerated social change, the piece ties elements of social and physical sciences together aesthetically to examine what a society might look like in a moment of extreme unrest.
